Forum: feature_films Subject: Need Footage from Public Domain Movies

I need some footage from a public domain source for use in a school project. The scene I am looking for would involve a mad scientist sort of character with chemicals. I also need a video of someone spilling chemicals. They do not need to be of the same person... Preferably in color, but not necessary. Any help you can contribute would be great.

EDIT: I am also looking for a video (preferably color) of a fire taking place.

Thanks,
Derek

Would Vincent Price be a suitable scientist? He's not exactly a mad man here, but it's worth checking.

"Lady Frankenstein" has chemicals. breakage, a fire, and several sets of boobies. I know you didn't ask for them, but they'll make a nice break while you're editing. :)

At about 2:45 a nurse accidentally bumps off the table and spills this chemical bottle on the floor which smashes apart nicely and leaves this shiny oozing brown muck that looks like what used to be a brain. You get a closeup of her blank staring at it. In color too.

Try poking around in the Movie Trailers section. There's all kinds of neat stuff in there.

Thanks. I did look there too, but a lot of the interesting footage is only a few seconds long and then there are words/titles over top of it.

Take a look at "The Brain That Wouldn't Die"

and "Frankenstein's Daughter."
